My girlfriend and I are looking to take off for a mini weekend trip to Maine. She mentioned going to Portland or Kennebunkport. I've been to both, but not in a while and not enough times to really know the area. I'm thinking of basing my decision on the restaurants and bars in the areas since it's not summer yet and we will be mostly walking around, grabbing drinks and food, etc.
Any suggestions of places to eat, drink, and be merry in either of these places in the off season?
Also, we are coming from Boston, so if someone thinks they have a way better idea than Maine for a reasonable weekend away from everybody we know, post away.
